After a small intermission, it’s time for Kasumi to audition at her favorite music venue. Will she make it?
Now that the band is complete, Saya goes shopping for a new electronic drum set with the help of her friends. It looks pricy, but thankfully Saya has money saved up. It’s funny how Hina pressures Saya to buy it with a stuffed animal. As expected, it seems to work well.
After returning home from the shop, the girls try their new equipment and practice. The girls eventually take a break. Kasumi talks about wanting to play at Space. Eventually, Tae receives a text message that one of the staff members collapsed. In other words, Kasumi went over there and ask the owner if they can help. The owner reluctantly accepts the girls’ help just this one time.
While the owner is strict, the girls eventually got used to the task they got assigned. After some practice, the girls got it down perfectly. In short, the performance night was a success.
While the girls are cleaning up the shop, Kasumi with Arisa brings back the lock box to the owner. They soon witness one of the girls crying because their band’s performance wasn’t perfect. From there, we see a different side of the owner. It’s surprising that the owner is not as strict, but also kind as well when she calms down a girl while giving encouragement. Of course, this surprises Kasumi as she never saw this side of the owner.
With that, Poppin’ Party eventually auditions next week. From the looks of it, it seems that Kasumi is the only person that thought their performance was good. It’s obvious that they won’t pass since the girls just started. Thankfully, the owner encourages Kasumi to keep trying.
Then again, perhaps the main reason she rejects is that she is planning to shut down Space. While it’s obvious it has nothing to do with Kasumi, I still wonder why? Is it because she wants to retire? Or is it she wants to do bigger things? We’ll find out the reason very soon.
